‘Big Love’ Celebrates Its Season Premiere

With many of HBO’s hit shows having ended, the cable network is looking to “Big Love” to pick up some slack. Is an hourlong drama about a Mormonish polygamous family living in Utah going to do that? We said the same thing about “Six Feet Under” and it’s funeral director premise. Here’s what to expect in Season two:

Issues of both faith and sex take a backseat to family politics and revenge. Barb’s mini-breakdown solidifies the women’s relationships — Bill may have the final word on things in the Henrickson household, but he sometimes has a hard time getting that word in edgewise. “There are four of us in this marriage, Bill,” Nicki informs him when he is not dealing with Barb to the other wives’ satisfaction (and any joyful visions of multiple sex partners dancing in viewers’ heads die an icy death).

It does sound like perverse fun.
